Tom Church, co-founder of, shared the ultimate guide to saving money at the German retailer.

These 9 tips could save shoppers up to £200 in total so it's pretty worth it!

The first rule is to understand Aldi's unique pricing strategy as it's good to know what products are the cheapest.

Now here are the other tips…

Buy Aldi Specialbuys online days before

Read the Specialbuys leaflet online before they're available in-store.

If something is super popular, it sells out fast online and there's less stock delivered to the shops.

Stick to Aldi's private-label brands

These products offer great quality at a lower price than competitors.

While there are some branded products on sale, Aldi's own versions are nearly as good.

Shop when new stock arrives

Plan your shopping trips on these days to take advantage of new stock arrivals.

Or, shop the evenings before when unsold previous stock may be reduced to clear.

Look for red stickers

Keep an eye out for red stickers that indicate extra savings on products.

They're generally applied in the mornings rather than the evenings (more similar to M&S).

Get the Super 6

Every two weeks Aldi picks six fruits and vegetables and reduces them to a low price.

Sign up for the Aldi newsletter

Be the first to know about deals by signing up for the Aldi newsletter and following them on social media.

The supermarket often announces upcoming deals on its Instagram stories, so you can nab them before anyone else.

  • 'I always get attention for being the hottest out of my friends – life's hard'

Shop early or during quiet times

This gives you the best chance of landing reductions on products.

Take advantage of Aldi’s bargain booze

Aldi's Haysmith’s Rhubarb & Ginger Gin, which costs £14.99 and has just been named one of the best gins in the world.

It beat out premium brands, including Edinburgh Gin's Rhubarb & Ginger flavour which is almost double.
